Creating VPN PPTP server
As servers are provided by hosting providers, you need first to sign up for them to know who they are dealing with.
Signing up at hosting provider
- Enter your email address
- Create and enter a password
Click Create an Account
Get into your email account and complete registration by clicking a link in the confirmation email
The registration is completed. The next step is adding a bank card.
Adding a debit/credit card
After registration you have to enter payment information. You need to have a debit/credit card which is accepted for online payments.
Use English while entering the data.
Then, we move on to the third step – choosing and creating a server.
Creating a personal server
Let’s get down to how to create a personal server (you can also create a website or personal cloud drive like Yandex disk or DropBox on this server). The DigitalOcean provider calls them Droplet.
Click Create Droplet and then you will be redirected to the page for creating server configurations:
- In Choose an image section choose the Ubuntu distribution (16.04×64 recommended)
Choose a tariff of 5$ per month or 0,007 cents per hour
Choose a datacenter region, which in the future will emulate your location (if you select the US city, the IP will be American). Moreover, it should be noted that the closer to the server you are, the faster you will load pages and files
At the end click CREATE to create Droplet (a server)
Creating takes 2-5 minutes. Then you will receive an email with the server’s IP address, login (usually root), and a password.
You can also learn IP on the main Droplet control page.
Let’s move on to creating from a regular server in the VPN.

Further we will tell how to connect to the server and what packages need to be installed to make it work!
Connecting to the server
In order to somehow manage the server (command line), you need a tool. In our case it’s the PuTTY utility, which you need to download and install.
After installation, run PuTTY, specify the IP address and click OPEN.
- Then you need to enter your login (root)
- You are required to change the received password immediately
ATTENTION! WHILE ENTERING THE PASSWORD, THE LINE REMAINS EMPTY AS IF YOU ENTER NOTHING
- password – “old”, current password
- (Curent) UNIX password – confirm password
- Enter new UNIX password – enter a new password
- Retype new Unix password – confirm a new password
Configuring PPTP server
Now after connecting the server, let’s configure it. For this:
Enter the command
nano vpn.shto create the VPN setup script
Paste this text vpn (click the link and copy the text)
- After pasting, press
- Press CTRL + O and then ENTER
- Enter the command
sh vpn.shfter that the setup script and personal VPN settings will be opened
- Press 1 and Enter to create a new user, create a password
- After entering all the data, the installation will begin. The VPN server is ready
